Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A whale tour with so much more. Informed commentary from Antje the Skipper and Sunny, Leading Hand. The history, as much info on the Humpback & Southern Right as you could digest. Following the bayside with fantastic aquamarine sands right up to the island lighthouse.

Did we see whales - sure did. Maybe not breaching but their tales, bodies and nostrils were all visible within 30m or so. The skipper certainly knew where to look. And we were treated to plenty of pods and singles. Also seals, albatross feasting on cuttlefish.

Hot drinks complimentary as much as you wanted and nibbles too. Sailing past bald head was amazing.

Ticked all the boxes from sighting whales, beautiful coastline, informed commentary and genuinely friendly staff. A must when you're in Albany.

A splendid half day chasing humpback whales around King George Sound. Knowledgeable staff, not just about whales, but birds, local history etc. endless hot drinks, snacks. Remote lookouts found a pod of four humpbacks on one occasion and a whale and her calf on the other. An excellent half day out.

Four of us went on this whale watching tour and we all loved it! We saw heaps of humpback whales and had dolphins playing in the wake of the boat. The crew were informative and interesting and went above and beyond to make sure we saw whales, staying out for an extra hour and a half in the hope that the whales breaching in the distance would trigger the whales close by into action. No luck but we saw lots of backs, tails and spouts. And we were also incredibly lucky to have one pod of whales singing loudly. We were extremely fortunate with the conditions given that it was winter - blue sky, no wind and only 1 meter swells.

Had a fantastic day out with Aaron and Sunny. Saw whales swimming and some seals sunbathing. The whales breaching at the end was a definite highlight. Thankyou so much to you both.

Set sail bang on time, as scheduled. We were provided commentary all throughout the trip whilst being fed with hot snacks, tea and biscuits. We searched for whales whilst taking in the beautiful surround of the Albany coastline. Aaron and Sunny could not have been more helpful and friendly. We searched for whales but they were not playing so the dolphins, and seal lions were our only finds but that made no difference to the wonderful morning we had with this trip.

On the way back in we consoled ourselves with hot donuts and a free return trip to spot whales. This offer is open until whales are spotted so you cannot go wrong.

Highly recommend these guys - such a special trip.

We went out for a lovely family whale-watching trip in July 2020. It was a sunny, but blustery day. We saw numerous whales and seals, but no dolphins on the day we went.

The crew looked after us well with drinks and morning tea. I won't be taking a chicken dinosaur again, but I do recommend their boat made scones and jam.

The captain told our 11-year old all about how they sail and find the whales while we sailed along. She enjoyed this very much. Thank you.
